My faith in live shows is renewed. It twas... Fantastic.
Aaron, Owen, Matthew and I went to the 6/4/2007 show at Gwinnett Arena. It’s been around 10 years since I’ve seen this band (@ The International Ballroom in 97 I think). Just under 2 hours of "the vision of TOOL". The best choreography of sound, video and lights I’ve ever seen. Each of the 11 or 12 songs were thought out and developed to be there own unique presentation and experience. 6 individual video screens, one behind each band member and 2 larger ones up high flanking the stage. Maynard was in silhouette the entire show. It was the best concert I have seen as “an adult”. After 7 songs or so, the band took a little breather / pow wow in the middle of the stage. The base player lit a lighter and started the torch lighting, terrible phone image below.
